Our best performance - Suzanne

Our best performance - Suzanne - 18 Jan 2008 - Women's Football NewsSuzanne Davies says that Rotherham United are determined to keep their Premier League status in their first season after promotion.
The hot shot striker netted twice as Rotherham recorded their best result of the season to date, a 5-1 victory away to Manchester City which has taken them to within two points of safety.
"It was our best performance this season, by a long way," Suzanne told Women's Soccer Scene. "Man City are a good team but we set off at a high tempo and controlled the game from the first whistle. It was a great result for us."
Rotherham have found the going a lot tougher after winning the Midland Combination last season but Suzanne insists that they have come to terms with the level now. "It's been a steep learning curve," she admits, "but we're really enjoying it and want to stay in this league.
"On half time scores, we would be up at the top of the league! It's in the second half that we let things go - fitness is one of the major factors and the all round strength of the teams. But overall, we have done really well against teams who have a lot of experience in this league.
"We always seem to be able to score goals but have let some silly ones in throughout the season. Teams are a bit more ruthless and clinical at this level, which we have found out."
Suzanne herself has successfully made the step up to Premier League level and her double against Man City has taken her tally to ten in the league. "I think I've held my own so far," she says, "and I think there is more to come from me."
However the long term goal is survival and Suzanne admits that things are likely to be tight. "We can't set a target of points as the league is up and down at the moment," she says. "Any team can beat anyone on the day in this division. We have some very important games coming up against teams such as Crewe, Stockport and Tranmere so we have to take every game a step at a time.
"The team has settled down well after finding their feet. I can't single any particular player out, everyone has improved and the work ethic at Rotherham has helped us through the bad times."
That determination could also be enhanced by the fact that Rotherham had come so close to promotion on a number of occasions before finally making the breakthrough. "We came close to winning the league three times," says Suzanne. "All the girls stuck together and wanted to go up as a team, and all the hard work paid off.
"Staying up was our aim at the start of the season, and to build it up from there. We are a self funded club and raise all money ourselves - the people in the background are the ones who keep the club moving and we are doing our best to make sure we stay there."
